Question
Does BD-X8 support FEC (Forward Error Correction) on 100GE interfaces?
Environment
  • BD-X8 / BDXB-100G4X
  • FEC 
  • Clause 74
  • Clause 91
Answer
FEC for 100GBASE-R interfaces is hardware dependent and is not supported on the BDX8. However, this is not technically a “limitation” on the BDX8 since FEC isn’t required (or even optional) for any of the interface types supported on the BDX8 CFP2 interfaces – 100GBASE-SR10 and 100GBASE-LR4.
